Connect Cornelius Donovan (b <1765) to Ireland

Cornelius Donovan was born prior to 1765 in Ireland but we can't connect him back to his birthplace. He shows first on the 1810 Census of Botetourt County, Virginia--age greater than 45 years old. He married Martha Snodgrass (b 1774 in Botetourt) 28 Apr 1792 in Botetourt. The family moved to Bourbon, KY about 1811. They had at least six children--four boys and 2 girls. We assume Cornelius emigrated from Ireland between 1775 and 1790 and landed in Virginia. Cornelius seems a very common name given Donovans during these years. Any info or suggestions appreciated.
